There is a tendency toward restoration of the volume of container cargo in Ukraine, which fell after the crisis of 2008. Jesper Pedersen, the country manager at Maersk Line Ukraine, said this during an address at the Ukrainian forum on transport infrastructure, the Center for Transport Strategies’ correspondent reports. The strategic media partner for the forum is the Center for Transport Strategies.

Pedersen also said that port tariffs in Ukraine are the highest in the entire Black Sea region.

"For a vessel to enter a Ukrainian port, the total amount of deductions should exceed USD 100,000, and this is a serious amount of money," said Pedersen.
